National History Bee and Bowl is an history focused academic competition directed by David Madden. It consists of the National History Bowl, a four-player team event played on pyramidal questions in a four-quarter format, and the National History Bee, an individual elimination-style event. Teams qualify for Nationals by placing above a certain threshold at state Bowls; all sites also have a Varsity and JV division.

For the 2010-11 school year, the local events were written by NHB staff and Nationals were written by HSAPQ; going forward, HSAPQ will write for all History Bowl events.
